Sample 1st Paragraph, Nurse from the Philippines

 

Now 52 years old and an accomplished and experienced nurse, I look forward to contributing to the diversity of your program at XXXX University as someone born and raised in the Philippines who has paid close attention to issues of diversity in nursing. I feel strongly that diversity issues have special relevance for the Family Nurse Practitioner because family dynamics always take place in a cultural context and the central role of the FNP is to orchestrate the healing and recovery process not only for the patient but also the patient’s family, to serve as an advocate for the patient and his or her family, and as a leader, taking the initiative in disease prevention in the community.

Sample 1st 2 Paragraphs, Letter of Intent for the MSN

Currently in my third semester of studies towards the BSN Degree at the University of XXXX, I hope very much to be selected to continue my graduate studies in nursing here at the University of XXX as well. I could not be more pleased that one of the finest nurse midwife Masters Programs in the world is here in Utah where my husband and I are building our home and making our family. Originally from Afghanistan, I am a former refugee who fled the political violence and civil war in my country and eventually was able to immigrate to America. I have come to dearly love Utah; it is wonderful to feel safe and to have the opportunity to study and progress professionally as a woman.

 

My husband has helped me open a small school for girls in Afghanistan and we have a few friends who are managing the teaching while we support them financially. My biggest dream is to expand our NGO at some point to include a teaching program for nurse midwifery and in this way have a share in addressing the desperate problem of one in eight women dying in child birth in Afghanistan, among the highest levels in the world.
